Roly Poly Hunt

The weather is a lil cool for July but perfect to be outside.  I had extra firewood pieces so we threw them in the corner to use in a variety of ways while were in the backyard.  This time we are moving pieces around to look for roly polys.

Our visitor today,,,,everyone loves Baby AJ and HE loves to come to "Miss Karri's house." as he says.

Tennis on the wall of the house....I think this may be one of their favorites to play outside.

You Are My Sunshine

We caught a BIG TOAD

Ohhh it was big and slimy....hopping all around the backyard as the kids were chasing it. Poor frog!! We walked across the street to the pond and let the frog go. He was happy and unlimited bugs all around to eat.

Nature Walk

Weather was perfect so we decided to go on a nature walk.  The kids and I collected pine cones, leaves, sticks and rocks.  We traveled over bridges, through fields of sticks and trees, on dirt roads, and along a big pond.  The geese were all around as well as a couple other bird species, which one of them the kids were amazed by. Had long legs like a flamingo but not sure what it was.  I don't know how I forgot bags to collect things but we just used our shirts to hold our pine cones.  We also spent some time throwing rocks over the bridge into the water.

 Jaxon's shirt is not working so well on holding his pine cones or better yet maybe he has collected way to many. Because they keep falling out :(

Patriotic Craft

The kids were challenged to make a patriotic picture to be sent to Washington DC for a special veterans event.
